I thought the problem was we suspected he was using these videotaped statementes to pass messages to his "cells." He knows we track his satelite phone, and he could either be embedding coded passages in the tape, or sending primitive "blink and cough" type messages. One of the statements his lieutenant issued apparently looked suspicious, like he was blinking almost every second.


Wouldn't the bin Laden followers be more likely to watch Al Jazeera TV (which you can get in the United States on DirectTV or other satellite systems.)
